Sure..and several pastured eggs a day, and a daily dose of coconut oil, and lots of beef or lamb (grassfed is ideal). No need to fear dietary cholesterol. The danger is sugar and excessive carbohydrate in the diet. Absolutely no wheat or grains in general either.

(link doesn't work for me either - but I'm assuming the topic is the cholesterol in shrimp, based on the thread title)

The link is working now and it is a good article. I am now believing that the cholesterol eaten in food does not directly relate to elevated cholesterol in the body. If it was true that what we ate directly showed in our bodies then everyone who ate oxtail stew should grow oxtails and our politicians would be eating sheep brain every day.

Yes Shrimp is high in cholesterol, but the Japanese love their shrimp, and they have low rates of heart disease.

I say enjoy the shrimp, but avoid the ones that are deep fried in batter.

Awwww Bobby, why did you have to say that! Deep fried in batter is the best way
